  1. I guess, that no, we can’t. Because every person view the world through their own reality there really is no way we can look exactly through their eyes, but we can try our best. And trying to understand someone else really is what one calls compassion.

  2. I don’t think it’s fully possible, but I do think listening, communicating, and showing empathy is a great start to get as close as possible.
